Newborn infants and their families are exposed to a great amount of stress and pain, inflicting short- and long-term negative consequenses. The research group study pharmacological and caring / supporting interventions to prevent and decrease this stress / pain and its effects. Methods to assess stress and pain are studied, and also how the existing knowledge is implemented in health care systems. The group has a wide national and international research-collaboration and works closely with the international PEARL research group.
